(ECNS) -- Chairman of The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) said on Wednesday in an interview with China News Service that trade frictions shall not stop investment in China.
"We have trade frictions and trade conflicts across the world, not just between China and the United States. You need to take those into consideration. You need to be flexible, but that does not mean you are not investing in China," Hans-Paul Bürkner said at the sideline of the Boao Forum 2019 for Asia in China's southern island province of Hainan.
"China is so important in almost every sector of the world industries that you have to be here in order to be a global leader," he added.
"China is the place where many new developments happen," Has said, adding that "it is really crucial for companies who really want to be global leaders."
China is the largest market in the word, so not competing here in China would be a big mistake certainly big international companies, Hans suggested.
